Modern classrooms

Children learn best in a fun, supportive environment in which they form an active part of the learning process. As a Meridian school, this environment is built by several factors, including the classroom’s appearance. Our classrooms are designed to be visually pleasing without causing undue distraction, while our dedicated teachers explain or present our enhanced curriculum with enthusiasm and passion.

The most engaging principle is project-based learning, which guides learners to assimilate the material through their own research and discovery. Rather than simply reading information from a textbook, the information is learned by interacting with the material through assignments, research, discussion or creative projects, all of which form part of our affordable school fees as a Curro-managed school.


Sports facilities

As a Meridian school, our well-kept sports facilities are designed to accommodate a variety of sports activities on the premises, as part of our affordable school fees.



Our aftercare service is available at an additional cost, as stipulated on our fees letter (see Downloads). Learners are accommodated in safe classrooms and playgrounds, and the fees include supervision and limited homework support.


Church services

At Northern Academy, we offer church services on both campuses to cater for the devotional needs of our learners. Our approach is partly based on Christian value (ethics and morals) and learners who follow religious practices are welcome and accommodated in our school.


Northern Academy boarding school

Northern Academy’s boarding school offers safe accommodation for learners of all grades. With two to four boarders per room, laundry and housekeeping facilities, comfortable learning areas, three wholesome meals per day and live-in boarding school staff, our boarding school is a safe, comforting home away from home.

The school and boarding school work together to ensure that learners are supported academically and emotionally. Therefore, learners receive help with their homework and studies, and enjoy planned fun activities every second weekend.

Read more on our boarding facility on our boarding school brochure (see Downloads).
